Rail Crossing Set To Close In Big Sandy

Rail crossings in Big Sandy have proven to be dangerous and inconvenient  so they will soon be closed.

That's what authorities tell us about a couple of railroad crossing intersections in Big Sandy.

The crossing on Grove St. has already been closed and the one at the intersection of Pearl street and highway 80 may be next. It's part of a state-wide effort to reduce train-auto accidents and delays.  

TX/DOT and Union Pacific railroad are subsidizing cities to close some rail crossings. The city of Big Sandy could get as much as 150-thousand dollars for the crossing closure.
